I am using Dorland's cold wax on sculptures made of wood. On one particular piece I started building up the wax in a few areas to alter the actual shape of the piece-- sometimes as thick as one inch. Of course even after a couple of weeks those areas remain "dentable", but because I know Dorland's has some resin in the formula will the wax eventually harden all the way through?

It's anrol again. I forgot to mention that I mixed the wax almost 50/50 with marble dust for the thickest areas.

This is a really good question. I believe it is going to harden, but the curing process is going to take a pretty long time.  Maybe close to a year.  That last bit of solvent actually takes quite a while to harden.  I think you are looking at 6mos to a year.  

This is an unusually thick layer you are talking about.  If you could update us on what you find it could help others.

Thanks for the insight,. I will finish the piece and then put it on a shelf for a good long while.

I’ll update my post at 6 months and, if it's still not hardened, then a year.
